Some absolutely crazy Chelsea fans are sinking their pints and getting merry today, here in a very excitable Transfer Tavern.
The Blues are going berserk after the Evening Standard are reporting that Jose Mourinho has convinced the Chelsea hierarchy to officially launch a £70 million bid for Juventus midfield star, Paul Pogba, who was formerly of Premier League rivals Manchester United.
This has come about after Chelsea have looked less than secure in defence this season, and doubts have started to emerge of the effectiveness of Nemanja Matic and Cesc Fabregas forging an effective partnership in a deeper role.
Since his time at United, the 22-year-old into a first team player for both the Serie A champions and the French National Team. The central midfield player managed an impressive five goals from outside the area last term and could add some much needed gusto in an underperforming Chelsea midfield!
A group of Chelsea supporting punters over on table 67 of the Transfer Tavern are deliberating this news, and feel that if Chelsea can land Pogba, then they will undoubtedly win the Premier League this season!
